(High School Edition)" by Fred Ebb, Bob Foss and John Kander on Friday,

November 17, at 2:00 p.m. in the CHS Auditorium, 2125 S 11th Street,
The high school
edition has been edited slightly to remove adult and overtly sexual
language, and two songs ("Class" and "A Bit of Good") have been eliminated
from the production.
twenties Chicago, chorus girl Roxie Hart (Paige Fowler) murders a faithless
lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos (Dylan Leavitt), to take the
rap. . .until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and
sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess," Velma Kelly (Rebecca
Lane), vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in
search of the "American Dream: fame, fortune, and acquittal."
Ticket prices are
as follows: $10 for Adults, $8 for Students and Seniors.
Tickets can be
purchased at the CHS Bookstore from 8 a.m.-Noon weekdays or
